Kershaw Knives

Kershaw Knives and Emerson Knives have joined forces on a series of knives that combine the precision engineering of Kershaw with Emerson's uncompromising functional design.

The CQC-1K features a modified clip-point blade for versatile cutting capability and striking looks. Black-oxide coating protects the blade and makes it non-reflective, too. A textured G-10 front scale in black offers a secure grip. The handle back is stainless steel with black-oxide coating. For a safe and solid blade lock up, the CQC-1K has a frame lock.

The CQC-1K is a manual opener using either the thumb disk or the patented Emerson "wave shaped feature." This opening feature enables the knife to be opened as it is removed from the pocket. By the time the knife has been fully withdrawn from the pocket, the blade is deployed and ready for use. A small wave-shaped tab on the top of the blade is built to catch on the pocket seam, opening the knife as it comes out of the pocket. This instant-open feature is a favorite among military, rescue, and law enforcement knife users.

This knife is based off the Emerson Gentleman Jim model and the pocketclip is reversible for left- or right-handed carry.
  • Manual - There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
  • Frame Lock - A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
  • Reversible - Pre-drilled holes in the handle enable the user to change either the tip position or the side on which the knife carries.

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip

8CR13 Stainless Steel
8CR13 Stainless Steel
Considered a value steel, 8Cr13 steel provides adequate corrosion resistance but with slightly more carbon than AUS-8, it will sharpen up and hold an edge better.

Solid for the money
This knife is solid for the money. It is small for my taste but is good for EDC and fits my medium sized hands well. the finish was not bad but did have some wear marks out of the box. The lock up on the is good. No blade play at all on mine and I ordered four to have presents for family, all where good. One had the pivot a little too tight and had to loosen for ease of opening. If you do adjust the pivot screw lock the blade open and the female counterpart will not spin. I would love to give this knife five stars but it is a little small, some what hard to open with the thumb disk, and the wave feature does not work as well as some cold steel knives that I own.

Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material
Got this knife because I really like the design. Went to open it for the first time, and the thumb disk spun freely under the phillips head screw. No biggie, its a 30 china knife. Tightened that, and opened it up. Immediately noticed severe vertical play in the blade. Ok, again its a cheap knife, to I went to tighten the pivot screw, only to find that the screw is mated with a smooth, round female head on the back. In other words, tightening the screw does nothing cause the female section spins freely with it. On top of that, when I looked at the flathead screw, its gouged, along with some of the g 10 on the handle. I know I know maybe I was too hard on the screwdriver. Thing is, I wasnt. The screw was spinning freely remember. So now, I knife that ive never put in my pocket has miserable lockup and a thoroughly scratched handle....unless I can figure a way to stabilize the female section of the pivot screw, and tightening the screw improves lockup, this thing is going in the trash, not even in the beater knife.drawer. shame, cause I really love the design
